Anonymous Patriots Player on Antonio Brown Going Live on Facebook: “F*ck Mike Tomlin”
Right after the Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC divisional game, Steelers WR Antonio Brown decided to go live on Facebook while head coach Mike Tomlin was giving a victory speech that took shots at the New England Patriots.
“Let’s start our preparations. We just spotted these assholes a day and a half. They played yesterday. Our game got moved to tonight. We’re going to touch down at 4:00 in the fucking morning. So be it. We’ll be ready for their ass. But you ain’t got to tell them we’re coming.”
Bleacher Report was able to get some exclusive reactions from a few anonymous patriots players, and they were tee’d off about the whole Facebook live fiasco.
“…several Patriots players began responding to text messages from B/R asking what they thought of the video. Specifically, the part where Mike Tomlin called the Patriots “assh–es.”
The first Patriots player responded within minutes. It was, as the kids say, lit.
“F–k Mike Tomlin,” one said.
“Why are we assh–es when he’s doing the name-calling?” asked another player. And he had some advice for Brown: “Put the phone down, dude. That violates the trust of your teammates and coaches.”
On Sunday, somebody is going to have to eat their words.
